Research Statement:

The focus of the research in my lab is to evaluate the mechanisms underlying vascular dysfunction and cardiac dysfunction seen in pulmonary vascular diseases.  The laboratory uses a variety of in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo approaches utilizing the preclinical models of pulmonary hypertension and emphysema.  In clinical and epidemiological research, we are attempting to characterize the role and impact of cardiac dysfunction in settings of lung diseases, and study the epidemiology of pulmonary hypertension.
